Straight From Local News Tonight
Okay, a man and his family are in a Burger King "Drive-Thru" ordering some fries and cokes for the family. Not wanting a lot of coin change, the dad (driver) gives enough money to insure dollar bills in a fair exchange. The cashier apparently didn't like this idea and words were exchanged. :argue: Suddenly the cashier (a punk; but not a muscle bound moose) LAUNCHES himself thru the dive-thru cashier window and into the pickup truck and begins to POUND the startled dad in front of the wife and kids. Kids screaming, crying, the wife gets out of the truck and moves around the front of the vehicle screaming at the punk to get off her husband. Suddenly the punk disengages and withdraws from the cab and moves on the WIFE.
Dad bails from the car and tackles the punk who is then held for the cops. Dad has several visible wounds on his head and face and (thankfully) his knuckles which I caught, but I'm not sure the viewing audience did. Also, dad and family were playing the "traumatized" card for the tv cameras (I'm sure the :sheep: were) and I don't blame 'em.... this is one heckuva lawsuit. The brass ring from Burger King! They deserve it (both parties). A lot of my kids work at BK and they're all talking about how difficult it is not to do the same thing to their customers.
Here's the question: You're the driver with your family. You're armed (say strong-side hip) AND you're belted in (good role model for the kids) how do you respond to this attack? Remember, the kid is not armed and he doesn't know you are. What do you do when he disengages to go after your wife? Remember, he's not a muscle bound moose, just a normal teen. :duh:
